2023 Pride Fest

The 44th annual Pride Fest will be held June 9th – 11th, 2023 in the history East Village of Des Moines, Iowa.

Pride Fest Parade registration is officially open until May 31, 2023.

The festival continues to grow. Last year, we welcomed over 40,000 attendees throughout the Pride Fest weekend. This year, we are expecting our largest turnout yet! To better serve the community, we have created an automated process through an online shop. The online shop will allow you to register your parade entry and pay the $50 dollar registration fee. View the 2023 Pride Fest Parade Rules and Information.
